I dont know anything about port and would like some help

Post by Rwright71 » 14:39 Wed 15 Nov 2017

Hi there

I was gifted some bottles of port when i was born and now need some extra funds and was thinking of selling these on.

I have been looking online but most of the websites want me to put in a year, this is where i struggled as i only have a couple of bottles with a year on.

Can any of you out there please help, i will take some photos and upload them asap.

Thanks

Hi, and welcome to :tpf:; we can certainly try and help identify and understand what you have, if you're able to post some images.

It would also be worth saying where you are located, and how/where the bottles have been stored, to help assess the bottles and provide advice on possible selling options. If you haven't seen it already, I would suggest also having a read through our standard advice to sellers , which discusses many of the issues and options, as well as to help set realistic expectations.
